More Information | Open Account In spite of the serious social problems inherited from apartheid, South Africa boasts the most developed economy of the African continent. South Africa alone generates 50% of the online bets for the entire African continent. All bookmakers give special attention to rugby which is South Africa's national sport. By hosting the 2010 World Cup, the nation was able to affirm its economic revival to the world, and for this, it is a market coveted by all bookmakers worldwide.
Beyond the classic betting on the partial or final result of matches, most of the bookmakers which are popular with Ajax Cape Town, Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates fans, to name just a few of the major teams preferred in South Africa, also offer bets on the team to score the first goal or on the total number of match goals. The most competitive bookmakers offer live betting for the ABSA Premiership matches so that users can follow the event live on their PCs. At the moment only Bet365 offers this service, but other bookmakers such as Pinnacle and Unibet offer similar services. The live betting format is both exciting and adrenaline-charged, and is supported by three very useful resources: statistics, live scores and live streaming that allows you to see what is happening in real time.
As mentioned, Bet365 is the bookmaker that dominates sports betting amongst South African fans. Lately however, bookmakers traditionally of a more European character such as Betfair, Ladbrokes and Sportingbet are also experiencing considerable success in South Africa. The relative ease of registration and the many options for transferring money into a betting account have added to the success of sports betting in South Africa.
The main preferred methods for money transactions in South Africa are typically credit cards and bank transfers, but recently many South Africans have begun to show a preference for alternative methods such as Skrill, Neteller or EcoPayz.
